Run a program in higher resolution and scale it down to fit monitor
Posted on 2013-01-02
We have DELL 22" monitors with the maximum resolution 1680x1050. We have a program that require 1130 pixels in height to display all information correct. The width 1680 is ok. The program is Java-based and we run it on computers running Windows 7.
Instead of buying expensive 22" monitors that can deliver 1920x1200 or 24" monitors, I'm looking for a software that can run the program in 1920x1200 and then scale it down to 1680x1050 (or zoom it to 87,5% of original size). That way we would get what we need.
Some command-line software that you could specify path to program to run, desired resolution to run it in and actual resolution to display it in (or percentage of original size).
All I can find is programs that actually changes the resolution and then changes it back when exiting. We just need this specific program to display more, the rest of the desktop and applications don't need it.
Now... does anyone know any software that could do this?
